Two April Events You Won’t Want to Miss: Special Screening of Schindler’s List and Yom Hashoah Commemoration

schindlers_listThe Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance has been dedicated to inspiring people to think about the consequences of their choices by teaching the Holocaust and other genocides.  Now in our 30th year, we remain steadfast in that dedication.

To mark 30 years, the Museum is proud to announce two special Holocaust Remembrance opportunities in April, the exclusive showing of Academy Award winning Schindler’s List and the 2014 Yom Hoshoah Commemoration.

On Thursday, April 24, at the Inwood Theater, the Museum will present an exclusive private benefit screening of Schindler’s List beginning at 6 p.m. The benefit screening will support the Museum and the USC Shoah Foundation in recognition of the vital work of both organizations, which have enlightened and inspired many people through the use of Holocaust testimony.

The film will not be re-released in theaters, so this is a unique chance to experience one of the most historically significant films of our time, one that led to the worldwide recording of Holocaust testimonies.

On Sunday, April 27, at Temple Shalom, the Museum will present the 2014 Yom Hashoah Commemoration, beginning at 6:30 p.m. This year’s Yom Hashoah observance is a testament to how the Holocaust changed the world. Special guests will light the six torches representing the six million who perished in the Holocaust. A musical presentation will allow us to further reflect on the lasting effects of the Holocaust.

Supporting both events enables you to contribute to two meaningful organizations, as well as remember and honor family, friends, and loved ones through words, photographs, and memorialization within our Yom Hashoah Book of Remembrance.

Join us at these events as we commemorate the Museum’s 30 years of education and promotion of tolerance within the human community. Celebrate the noble and necessary work of the USC Shoah Foundation and its impact on research and dedication to testimonial evidence. And finally, join us as we remember the events of the Holocaust and celebrate the lives of victims, Survivors, and Upstanders everywhere.
